Well, the question now is: Can
Pat Riley shoot a basketball across

to do it.
The 84-77 game that was lost
here last night was hard-fought
and harder won. But, though they
give A's for effort, the NCAA has
not yet come up with a point
system for it.
If a 51.4 per cent shooting blaze
from the floor doesn't tell the
story, then nothing will. Michigan
could only pull out with 37.6 per
cent last night.
In the end, rebounding was too
big a factor also. The Blue didn't
have the edge there that they
needed. A tie was all they could
manage. Pat Riley was, beyond
r4 any doubt, the biggest'of the long
rifles among Kentucky's Dan'l
Boones. The Cats could look for
him whenever they got into trou-
ble under the pressure of a tight
man-to-man defense which was
tough to get by in the final per-
iod. In spite of Kentucky's effi-
0 ciency on the floor-their offense
was a perpetual motion machine
of cuts down the lane and picks
on the side-the Blue stayed lose
with them at every turn.

Resignation Sparks



Vice-President for Academic Affairs Allan F. Smith has
reiterated his support for the new Selective Service policy of
class ranking for determination of student deferments. In an
interview with the Detroit News he took issue with Howard R.
Neville provost of Michigan State University who had been
quoted as supporting random selection of college students as
opposed to drafting from the lower 25 per cent.
Smith said that while Neville's arguments are plausible, they
represent "a social objective, not an educational one. You have
to go back and rediscover the rationale behind student defer-
ments. that there is more than one way to serve your country.
It has been determined that we need skilled manpower and
trained leadership as well as soldiers, and that those in the top
half of their class are the best able to provide it. Grades do
mean a great deal; I just can't subscribe to the idea that they
are meaningless and completely arbitrary.
A group of students from the University of Kansas visited
the University recently to find out about the Residential College
,and pilot project. The Kansas group met with the faculty and
student Residential College planning committees to get ideas for
a similar project at Kansas,
Burton D. Thuma, director of the Residential College, said
yesterday, "I think it is good that we have enough fame that
students at another university are interested in coming to
observe our operations."
Dr. Myron Wegman, dean of the School of Public Health,
left Friday for the first leg of a trip to Viet Nam. He is one of
a 15-member presidential task force which will survey the edu-
cational and health needs of the Vietnamese people.
The group, headed by Welfare Secretary John W. Gardner,
will divide up into health and education to help plan an intensi-
fied attack on hunger, ignorance, and disease.
Dr. Wegman said before his departure that although the one-
week trip seemed too short for such a survey, he was anxious to
go because "I have reached the conclusion that health work is
the best way to break down the language and cultural barriers
to achieve peace and understanding."

Long Distance
"The Paper" became an authorized student publication at
Michigan State University Thursday afternoon after a chaotic
series of events on the East Lansing campus. official recognition
for the dissident student newspaper started last fall by former
Michigan State News editorial director Michael Kindman was
granted by the University's Board of Student Publications.
An open meeting of the Board of Student Publications was
adjourned by members less than five minutes after it began
when a graduate student Richard Trilling interrupted Board
Chairman Frank Senger by reading a three minute statement. At
Kindman's appeal a second closed meeting was held on the Union
sun porch. Three student photographers reportedly climbed out
a window on the second floor stairwell attempting to get a picture
of the private meeting. They were unsuccessful. Emerging
victoriously from the meeting Kindman told the crowd of his
success and then pointed to the demonstrators who had inter-
rupted the meeting saying, "Those clods out there had nothing
to do with it. In fact they almost messed up the whole deal."

Helpful and Needed
The popularity of the Canter-
bury House, sponsored by the
Episcopalian Church is proof that
it is a very helpful and needed
enterprise. Started by Rev. Dan
Burke and Rev. Martin Bell, the
Canterbury House was conceived
on a Tuesday in September and
opened the same Friday.
It also is open all day for stu-
dents to use its study and recre-
atio nal facilities. Its success can
be measured however by the tre-
mendous number of people that
jam into it each Friday and Sat-
urday night to relax in its friend-
ly atmosphere of intimate discus-
sions, twangy guitar music and
humorous poetry readings. "We
vary the program to get a variety
of people to come," says Bell.
As for the part that religion
plays in the functioning of the
Canterbury House-, Burke says
"What isn't religion? Whenever
people come together to freely dis-
cuss ideas, religion is present. At
the Canterbury House, we just
don't try to push it in any mold."
Growing Role
Burke and Bell forsee a growing
role for the ministry to play in
relating the student to the uni-
versity and the world. The re-
ligious leaders must always be
searching for new ways to express
what must be expressed, they said.
As for the future of the Canter-

Give Praise
And Censure
Faxon Conniends
Regent's Integrity;
Others Hit Dual Role
The resignation of Eugene
Power from the Board of Regents
Friday prompted praise yesterday
for his educational accomplish-
ments and criticism of his business
dealings with the University over
the past years.
Power resigned shortly after the
release of Michigan Attorney Gen-
eral Frank Kelley's legal opinion
that he was in a substantial con-
flict of interest in his business
dealings with the University.
Rep. Jack Faxon (D-Detroit),
whose House subcommittee on
higher education asked for the at-
torney general's opinion, praised
Power as a man of high moral in-
tegrity and personal courage with
"a distinguished record of service
to the people of this state."
George F. Montgomery (D-De-
troit), a member of Faxon's com-
mittee, said "the only real solu-
tion for Power is to resign proper-
ly, unless he is willing to sell his
interest in Xerox Corp. (UMI is
a subsidiary of Xerox) or relin-
quish his position as a director,
which I doubt."
Regent Carl Brablee described
Power's resignation as a result of
being a victim of circumstance.
"What really bothers me," said
Regent Irene Murphy, "is that we
are now engaged in the process
of selecting a new president, our
most crucial task.
"This only comes along ever 10
or 15 years, and it takes a major
part of one term to understand the
University and the kind of leader-
ship it needs," Mrs. Murphy added.
Senate Majority Leader Ray-
mond Dzendzel (D-Detroit) ex-
pressed 'disappointment at "the
loss to the state of a man who as
regent has done so much for
higher education."
Sen. Roger Craig (D-Dearborn)
a member of the appropriations
committee, blasted Power, saying
that "if there is any worry about
losing the democratic majority on
the board, any individual who has
voted for tuition increases is no
great loss." Power voted for last
summer's tuition increase.
Sen. Gilbert Bursley (R-Ann
Arbor) said, "I have greatest per-
sonal liking and respect for Mr.
Power. I feel he did the correct
thing considering what seems to
be a irreconciable conflict."
As faculty and student efforts
to attempt to retain Power con-
tinued, a spokesman for the At-
torney General's office said yes-
terday that Sec. 291 of the Michi-
gan Election Code says that when
a Regent chooses to resign the
Governor and Secretary of State
"shall be notified."
Power's letter, however, was
sent to University Secretary Erich
A. Walter with instructions that a
copy be sent to each Regent.
Nothing has been sent to the
Governor or Secretary of State,
it was learned. The letter was
understood to have been written
to the Regents on advice of coun-
Regent Irene Murphy said last
night of Power's letter of resigna-
tion, "I hope to receive a request
for consultation with his regental
colleagues about his intention to
resign from the board."
University legal sources said
that, at present, the legal status
of the letter might not preclude
the Regents from studying the
attorney general's renort and con-
